Joe Woodard

I know the training at Accountex will empower small business advisors to transform small businesses, and I’m honored to be presenting a keynote, presenting a breakout session and sponsoring this exciting conference.

Accountex announced Joe Woodard as a keynote speaker at the 13th annual Accounting Technology Conference & Expo. It will be the first time Woodard has spoken from the general session stage at Accountex in over 10 years; his keynote address, Rise of the Machines: A Business Survival Guide evaluates the rise of automation for accounting tasks and how future professionals will need to adjust their practices in light of this imminent paradigm shift.

Joe will also be hosting a Woodard Institute pre-conference workshop, Gateway Essentials: Honing Your Professional and Leadership Skills, an all-day event on November 15th from 8am to 3:30pm that guides accountants through an exploration of their professional vision, the “brand” they want to communicate as an extension of this vision, and the way their vision impacts the culture and development of their practices. The workshop includes a balanced mix of instruction, personal exercises, and group interaction and teaches attendees how accountants can better steer their practices, manage client relationships and lead clients through change.

As an author, consultant, Intuit contractor and national speaker, Joe has trained over 75,000 accounting professionals in the areas of practice development, changing technology trends, and how to maximize the use of QuickBooks in their accounting practices. Joe is the founder of both Woodard Events and Woodard Consulting and hosts both the nation’s largest conference for certified QuickBooks ProAdvisors and the nation’s largest independent network of QuickBooks ProAdvisors. In 2012, 2014 and 2015, Joe was recognized by Accounting Today as one of the Top 100 Influencers within the Accounting Profession.

“My training and coaching company is vision driven. We seek to transform small businesses through small business advisors. I’m excited to be part of a conference that is aligned with this vision.” Woodard continued, “I know the training at Accountex will empower small business advisors to transform small businesses, and I’m honored to be presenting a keynote, presenting a breakout session and sponsoring this exciting conference.”
